ISPnano Series 3- Production ISP Programming Module

 
 
 

The ISPnano Series III is a state-of-the-art ISP Programmer designed for high-speed In-System Programming (ISP) of FLASH Microcontrollers and Serial Memory devices in a production environment.

ISPnanoS3

 Its compact size and abundance of programming ports makes it ideal for integration into any Test Fixture or ATE System. It supports programming of devices by most interfaces including SPI, JTAG, JTAG chain, XMEGA PDI, ATtiny TPI, SCI, I2C (2-wire) and UART Boot Loader. The fastest possible programming times are guaranteed due to a combination of highly optimised algorithms, local storage of Project Data and high slew rate Line Driver Circuitry.

The ISPnano Series III is capable of operating in 'Standalone Mode' where any one of 64 independent 'Programming Projects' can be executed via a remote command.  The programmer also features a 4-wire TTL Remote Control interface making it ideal for interfacing to any ATE or In-Circuit Tester (ICT). A special 'Start Signal' can be used to detect when a Test Fixture lid has been closed and thereby automatically start a programming operation.

The ISPnano Series III is a scaleable ISP programming solution capable of programming multiple PCBs on a 'PCB Panel'. This is made possible by networking up to 32 x ISPnano programmers to a single PC. All programmers can then be configured to start simulataneously under PC control.
